M.I.A. (Apparently That’s Just One Person?) Behaving Like A Child
Maya Arulpragasam, known in music circles as M.I.A., got caught up this week in a feud with journalist Lynn Hirschberg of the New York Times, according to this article from Entertainment Weekly. Hirschberg wrote an article criticizing the gap between M.I.A.’s outspoken political views and her wealthy, luxurious lifestyle. This is a woman, Hirschberg points out, that champions radical political/terrorist groups such as the Tamil Tigers while living in a mansion in Hollywood. Anyway, M.I.A.’s response was to post the reporter’s cell phone number on Twitter. Real mature, lady, real mature.
